Third time eating here. Was before Valentine's day and was very lucky as we had no reservations. As always, the food was very good. We have only ever eaten here for the lunch menu. Menu is very good. Food is very tasty and ample serving size.

Food was delicious!! The restaurant was an intimate setting, but I found it crowded I guess because it is a small place. Overall we had a lovely meal and would recommend The Olive Tree to anyone who likes to try something different.

Nice restaurant but limited seating. So you should book a table usually can book same day. Did feel a little rushed while eating. But the food was very good and priced reasonable. I would go back again for sure.

I have eaten here several times over the past couple of years and must say I have always enjoyed my meal. The menu is full, varied, and changes fairly frequently. One never tires of the menu. The décor is cozy. inviting, and the staff is like family, in a good way of course. Make a reservation to assure you get... More

I was expecting better food and nicer decor at this restaurant. It was average, nothing special. Decoration was tacky and food rather tasteless. Looks like they are trying but they need to try harder

Having read good reviews i went to the place with high expectaions. A word of advice, slow down when you are driving by, i missed it, twice.... Anyhow walked in and the place was almost empty, i was asked about a reservation. I looked and around at the empty place and thought "really?!?" I understand that normally around 7 pm... More

Great place except I will usually avoid during the busiest lunch hour as have experienced long waits and even one occasion where our order never even made it to the kitchen they were so busy!

Everything about this place was great, service, atmosphere, food portions, and the food itself. The servers were the sweetest I've ever met -- I went solo and they kept making sure I was okay haha, but I asked to tip on a separate card (which they couldn't do) so she told me to get her next time. Sweet! I got... More
